Passholders can now make your paddle court reservations online. Effective Monday, November 15 at 9:00 a.m. you can see what courts are available and reserve a court via the Internet. Here’s how it works:

1. Go to the reservations system website at A link to this site can be found on the Village website and at

2. Type in the general password which is “hinsdale” (this password is the same for all paddle passholders).

3. You will be taken to the reservations page.

b. Select your name and the names of your other 3 players from the drop-down lists.

e. Put in your Paddle Pass number. This is the number on the pass you received from the Village earlier this Fall. If you can’t find your pass please contact Linda at the Village of Hinsdale Park and Recreation Office at (630) 789-7090.
f. Press the “Update Court Reservation” button.
g. When the screen updates and shows your reservation press the “Print Confirmation” button and print a copy for your records. This will prevent any confusion at the courts.

The rules for making reservations are the same as they were before except that you can now make a reservation right up until 15 minutes before your court time.

Reservations are limited to one (1) reservation during prime time per week. Prime Time Defined:
